    EMBARRASSING! Pathetic performance. Totally heartless. Smith Jr. , Zeller, and Nance were the only ones who looked like cared. CJ has become a basket case. Nurk has forgot how to block shots. I give Powell a little slack due to that broken nose. But those end of the bench assclowns who didn't give a shit about Prichard bitch slapping them makes me sick. Thanks Neal for loading our bench with brick layers. I hate when Chauncey throws in the flag because i know those guys CAN'T play dead. Other teams at least have guys who can shoot. Man! Brutal!

    If I was worried about effort, I think I would sit down with the team and ask them if they thought effort was lacking and if so, why.

    Its institutionalized. Outside our guards we aren’t bad defensively. But in today’s NBA once the guards get burnt it’s lights OUT

    when you put quotes around something, that means the person actually said that statement.

    when did neil say that?

    Fuck Nurk, and everyone that wants to say I don’t understand his importance on defensive can be quiet too, 145 points and Freedom tripled his rebounds in the same amount of min.

    I’m talking only about effort, competitiveness, body language, etc. The stuff that is 100% controllable

    lies != sarcasm.

    clearly this level of humor is beyond my understanding.

    We got rid of both.

    The healing begins. We are just in those first few moments of pain after ripping off the band aid.

    are you really going to go all Matlock about quotation marks?

    I mean...I knew Olshey probably didn't say it, but it was some good sarcasm

    It seems maybe a more experienced coach like Scott Brooks needs to intervene here. Try to help fix this schism that is developing.
